Two victims identified in Hernando ATV crash

BROOKSVILLE — The Florida Highway Patrol has identified two Dade City teenagers who died after their all-terrain vehicle crashed into a sport utility vehicle Saturday night in eastern Hernando County.

Steven R. Villareal, 18, died at the scene. Daniel W. Brown, 19, died at Pasco Regional Hospital, where he had been in critical condition, an FHP report said. Brown was not wearing a helmet or seat belt.

Villareal was driving south on Goodstone Drive at 10:20 p.m. Saturday with Brown as his passenger when their ATV crashed into an eastbound SUV on Umbrella Rock Street, FHP said.

The SUV rolled over, injuring driver Lauren Hinson and all five SUV passengers. They were treated for minor injuries at Pasco Regional and released.

Identifying the victims was difficult because neither was carrying identification, FHP said.

FHP said the crash was not alcohol-related and no charges have been filed.
